Abstract: Big governments lead to lower levels of short-term economic growth. But is the size of this negative effect the same in different nations? I argue that big government matters less for growth in small countries than it does in large ones, because large countries are more dependent on domestic sources of production and consumption for their economic growth than are small countries. I find support for this argument in a panel study of 23 industrialized nations. I also find support for a subsidiary hypothesis linking big government in the US and/or Japan with low levels of growth across the industrialized world, but especially among small open economies.

Abstract: High attrition and lurking threaten the sustainability and effectiveness of online communities. Regarding this, previous studies have emphasized the impact of group size on user participation and attachment because it is closely related to capability to provide resources to the members. This paper delineated (a) how the patterns of participation changes as the group size increases, (b) how the change in group size affects members attachment, and (c) what is the optimal size to maximize participation and to minimize member attrition. The results revealed a negative relation between group size and active participation (i.e., posting messages in discussion group). However, we found a quadratic relation in which group size is negatively associated with attachment (e.g., page views, time spent, and span of active use) up to certain point yet the influence of group size became positive if the group size is above certain threshold (i.e., approximately 250 in this study).

Abstract: While assumed to be associated with increased performance, the relationship between size and growth with performance is far from established. This study examines these relationships in a sample of 754 manufacturing firms. Results raise questions as to whether pursuit of size should remain as ubiquitous has it has historically been.

Abstract: This study examines the temporal relationships between the growth and decline of cities and states and changes in the distribution of power among states in five whole interstate systems. The interstate systems that we study are those centered in Mesopotamia, Egypt, East Asia, South Asia and the expanding Central PMN. We study the relationships across time between the growth and decline of the largest cities and the largest polities we will examine the relationships between these and changes in the power configuration of these same systems. Interstate power configurations vary from decentralized to centralized based on the relative sizes and power of the interacting states in each system.
